Patient-sized HUMMERS cruise through Mott operating rooms and into surgery
In Dec. 2006, HUMMER Corp. donated two child-size ride-on HUMMER vehicles to C.S. Mott Children's Hospital that will allow patients to "drive" into surgery. By making the surgical experience more fun for kids, U-M pediatric surgeons and OR staff hope to help ease children's stress, fear and nervousness about surgery. A similar donation was made to a children's hospital in Louisiana, and health care staff there have noted the difference the HUMMERs have made in reducing the amount of stress a child experiences before surgery.
